  1. 550th Gulfstream G550 Ships To Customer
    Gulfstream is proud to announce that it has delivered the 550th Gulfstream G550 to a customer. The airframer did not list who the milestone executive aircraft was handed over to but it solidifies the notion that the G550 is one of the most popular large-cabin business jets around. “This milestone delivery affirms the continued demand for the G550, one of the most dependable and sought-after aircraft in the world today,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The G550’s best-in-class range and payload have earned it a lasting reputation as a versatile aircraft for business aviation and an ideal platform for special missions.”
  2. “The G550 has set the standard others follow,” Burns said. “The only aircraft in service today that fly farther than the G550 are our own Gulfstream G650 and G650ER. The G550 was also the first to feature our award-winning PlaneView™ flight deck, which quickly became the new ideal in business aviation. The aircraft’s technological and safety advances even led the G550 to be awarded the prestigious Robert J. Collier Trophy.” Powered by two robust Rolls-Royce BR710 C4-11 engines, the G550 has the longest range of any business jet in its class. It can easily carry up to 19 passengers between the world’s business capitals and can fly eight passengers and four crew 6,750 nautical miles/12,501 kilometers nonstop, connecting New York with Dubai at Mach 0.80, or London with Los Angeles at Mach 0.85.
